In the Westcliff-on-Sea suburb, Cliffs Pavilion is the largest purpose-built performing arts venue in Essex, seating more than 1,600. Construction started in the 1930s, but was halted by the Second World War and then abandoned altogether. A new development finally opened in 1964 and this owes its current design to a redevelopment in the early-90s. Some world-famous music artists have played the Cliffs Pavilion, like Oasis, Blur and, more recently, One Direction.
